Team performance during Doddie Aid 2022 results in a £2000 donation

Roz Boynton and Marny WaddellFor the first 6 weeks of 2022, the team at Cycle Law Scotland took part in Doddie Aid 2022, racking up 'miles' for their chosen Districts by walking, dog walking, running, cycling, golfing and skiing.
 
Doddie Aid is a mass participation event, encouraging participants to get active in January and raise funds to help find a cure for Motor Neurone Disease. It was founded by former Scotland captain and British and Irish Lion, Rob Wainwright raising a staggering £1M in January 2021, with 27,000 people taking part.
 
This year, a new league feature was added to the app to record the miles and it allowed participants to compete against family, team mates and colleagues. We created a league for the Cycle Law Scotland team so that we could record both individual results as well as the collective team result.
 
With the aid of some extra big miles from a couple of team members towards the end of the 6 week challenge, we were able to break through the 4000 mile barrier recording a total of 4050 miles from 348 work out sessions.
 
Brenda Mitchell, Senior Partner, commented: “I was delighted to see the wide participation from so many members of the team. However, our two top performers deserve a special mention. Roz Boynton, CLS's Aberdeen based solicitor rode a staggering 1400 miles, all completed indoors on her turbo trainer. Roz doesn’t like the rain and the cold, but she is a machine on her turbo. On the other hand, Marny Waddell, a member of our admin Team doesn’t mind our Scottish weather and completed 500 miles on her bike as well as a few rounds of golf in challenging conditions; a fantastic effort as Marny had a hip replacement just a few years ago. All in all, one massive Team effort for such a deserving cause.
 
Thanks to the collective achievement of the CLS lawyers and support staff, the firm will be donating £2000 to My Name'5 Doddie Foundation. This is on top of £310 already donated by individuals.
 
Roll on 2023!
